    A crowd pleaser all the way! I made it for a Christmas get together and while the boys watched football they killed half the bowl (I made double the recipe with both pecans and walnuts). Very simple and was a delicious addition to morning yogurt and a friend ended up topping her cheesecake with it. I wish I had caramel sauce for her because it would've been fab. Definitely a keeper :)

    These are quite nice. I followed Momaphets suggestion and skipped the first baking of the pecans. I think that I'm glad I did. The sugar candy on the nuts set up not hard but firm and yet the nuts are still tender. The flavor is excellent. Made for Comfort Cafe, Jan '10.

    These were really good and alot easier to make than I thought it would be. Too bad they didn't last long in my house! Must make again!

    These are fast, simple and tasty! As another reviewer said a nice balance of flavor without being too sweet. By the time all the cooking was done and I thought the pecans were a bit too toasty, I will make them again and cut the initial cooking time to 5 minutes or skip it all together. Made for the Comfort Cafe Winter 2010

    Really liked these. The coffee, cinnamon and sugar are perfectly balanced so as not to be overly sweet, yet all the flavors still come through. Cut recipe down to one quart. Use foil lined pan to make clean up easy. Will be making these again. Thanks so much for the post.

    I used almonds instead of pecans. Makes a mess to clean, but very good. It's almost like praline covered almonds.
